While his site is down, Whale Oil has become the subject of a juicy story.
I don't mean the delight taken by the Standard boys or Robinsod, but a delicious tale that leads all the way to the Beehive.
Can one of his informants be Dear Leader herself?
Matthew Hootton is alleging that the Crapper Video that Whale Oil and other bloggers posted one recent Sunday came from the Beehive!
While it appears Dear Leader is doing her utmost to hang on to her poodle, leading to theories he must have 'dirt' on her, Hooton has postulated that Dear Leader is playing a most cynical, longer term game- the destruction of New Zealand First. Thus, if ACT-National fail to get the numbers, New Zealand gets a more LPG government more to her taste.
The Hive is sceptical of the story, but notes a senior government adviser believes that for Liarbour to win, NZ First must be destroyed, which fits in well with Hooton's information.
Queen Bee concludes:
We love the humour of the Beehive arranging the tape to be sent to Whaleoil of all people!!
Indeed, this is certainly the opposite to my understanding, but politics is a devious and dirty game.
There can be few more skilled operatives at its black arts than Uncle Helen herself, and indeed Whale Oil , learning since childhood when I'm sure he said he once sat on Muldoon's knee!
